World War II

1939-1945

The Blitz

 

Great Britain came under heavy Bombing during the Second World War.

 

During the Blitz between 7th September 1940 and the 16th of May 1941, 16 English Cities had been bombed by the German Luftwaffe Air Force

 

Well over 40,000 people lost their lives during the Blitz with half the casualties in London.  

 

The Luftwaffe raided on 57 consecutive nights on the capital with heavy bombing and also destroying well over one million houses in the 8 month Nazi bombing campaign in London alone.

The Germans had intending demoralising the British into submission but British production expanded during the eight months of  Luftwaffe Air Raids.

 

The Germans bombing failed to make much of an impact as planned due to poor intelligence on British industries and its full capabilities were undermined by the Germans.
